“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous” – Coco Chanel
Making skirts is my all time favorite especially for my daughter Arielle. She truly loves when I sew for her and every time she sees something that she likes, her first words are “Mommy can you make this?” It’s amazing how 1 year of sewing already got my daughter hooked on me creating her OWN unique styles and looks.
So my daughter wanted to be Minnie for Halloween and picked out her OWN fabric from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store. I first wanted to create a RED tulle skirt but when she came across this perfect fabric, she said this is the one mommy. Amazingly enough, I had a 60% off coupon and I think it cost under $10 for all the fabric and elastic. I also visited a local trimmings store in Downtown Miami to obtain ribbons for the bows.
We used the pattern from Mingo and Grace ( MG2715) Crop Top Skirt Set.
I decided after to create a detachable belt using the smaller PULKA dot fabrics. Hope to create an entire look soon with the actual crop top very soon. I made an attempt to create the sleeveless version and did a minor mistake with the arm area.
Cant wait to create the BLAKE dress from Mingo and Grace for her BIRTHDAY LOOK!!!! Go check her out and her amazing photos.
Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!
